Great day spent in Athens with Markos! Efficient, knowledgeable and professional! We got the most out of a short time because of the organization of Markos. Thanks for a fun day!

Markos is the most patient, genuine, polite, handsome and friendly tour guide you could ever wish for. He is a wealth of knowledge about more than just Athens' history and he is very considerate and well-mannered. A true ambassador to the city of Athens and to ToursByLocals. He met us punctually at the hotel and drove us in his spotlessly clean and comfortable vehicle. All of his time predictions were spot on - as were all of his food and restaurant suggestions. My strongest possible recommendation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words.

A lovely day, Markos arrived a few minutes early, smartly presented and with an immaculate vehicle. He was able to flex the day around our preferences as we had already seen some areas. His English was colloquial and fluent . He had obvious pride in his native city and was able to explain some of the current difficulties and illustrate modern Athenian life. He had a good knowledge of history, legend and gods to underpin the development of Athens. He gave us a good sense of the sites.Lunch was fabulous.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your trust and kindness.

Our recent tour of Athens with Markos was a very enjoyable experience. He is very thorough in ensuring that his guests see the best sites in Athens. He is a gentleman, a wonderful source of information and his pride in his home-town is obvious. His vehicle is impeccably clean and very roomy. We highly recommend Markos if you want a memorable Athens experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your beautiful words.

This review is long overdue! My 73 year old mother, her 72 year old friend, my 47 year old bother and my 43 year old self toured Athens with Markos in September 2017. We met Markos early in the morning at the cruise port and spent the day with him. He was very knowledgeable and answered questions we had about history and current affairs in Greece. He was patient with the elders in our group and did a great job of keeping us on schedule so we got to see as much as possible. We had a wonderful time!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. I hope to see you again.

If you ever want to tour Athens—Toursbylocals—with guide Markos V--was excellent- We toured Athens in his beautiful Mercedes van & he gave us the history of Athens and of each place we stopped. He was very flexible in our schedule (to do just what we wanted to do). We even stopped at his favorite local lunch place and had an excellent authentic Greek lunch. He lived in Rome his whole life, and was lots of fun, very knowledgeable and interesting. We highly recommend this company and Markos V.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much if your kind words. There is only one small mistake. I lived my whole life in Athens. I hope to see you again in the future.

I give Markos the highest rating possible. He made us feel like family, he provided historical perspective at each site, and we could not have seen so much in the little time we had if it wasn't for Markos. I highly recommend him. He is beyond excellent and we wish he could have been our tour guide at every port!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you with all my heart for your review.

We covered many of the sights in Athens on our half day with Markos, but we never felt rushed. He was flexible with our time based on what we wanted to see. My husband is a photographer so having some extra time for him to take photos was built into our schedule. Markos was so friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming, we simply enjoyed our time with him. I would recommend him to anyone visiting and looking for a great guide to show them around Athens, esp. if you are limited on the length of your visit!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words.

Markos was a wonderful guide last week for our family of 6 adults. He met us, with umbrellas in hands, as we disembarked from our cruise ship. From the moment we met him, we knew that we would have a great experience! Markos followed the itinerary that we had specifically requested. Perfect! He even took care of the weather and made the rain go away before our first stop. The highlights of the day were the Acropolis, the Changing of the Guard, and our lunch stop at a local eatery...served family style!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review! I hope to see you again soon!

Marlos is the best private tour guide, without question! Marcos arrived ahead of schedule, was professionally presented and offered an immaculate vehicle; in no time we were seated and on our way to an extended half day tour of Athens. En route to the Acropolis of Athens we received a wealth of valuable and interesting information from Markos. Tips and hints from Markos proved very helpful throughout the day and a Greek lunch was a huge highlight - Markos impressed us and is highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review! I hope to see you again! Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

Markos was a wonderful driver and guide. He is knowledgeable, warm and funny. Our family had a complicated day with regard to flight times and meetings, Markos made it all work and left us with an unforgettable day in Athens. I can't wait to recommend him to any friend traveling to Greece. Our day was amazing because Markos made it so. Thanks, Lou

We were picked up at the pier in Athens by Markos for a 6 hour tour of the Greek countryside and a bit of Athens. He was truly OUTSTANDING IN EVERY WAY. He was exceptionally kind, courteous, friendly and warm. He spoke about his country with sincerity and pride. He told us a little about his personal life, which is always endearing. His knowledge about what we were seeing was remarkable and his manner of presenting information was informative with many anecdotes which always makes a story more interesting

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much is the least I can say.. Take care and I hope to see you again!! My Best Regards!

Markos is GREAT!! Knowledgeable, and an excellent communicator you instantly become comfortable with. He is spotless in his service and presence focused on the personal style of each customer. He tailors to his audience using history as well as insights most travelers will NEVER hear from anyone else. He connects Greek Gods and Goddesses and historical facts with modern day Greek life! Next trip...I'm booking Markos for my entire sightseeing needs...worth every euro!! Thank you Tours By Locals and Markos!

Very personable and knowledgeable guide - fun to be with and he made the whole crazy Athen's traffic nightmare seem to go away. He was always right where he said he would meet us and prepared us with everything we needed to enjoy viewing each site on our own. The lunch stop was the best! You should hire him just to go to his "secret" place for lunch.

Best tour ever, ir you like good things and like to be confortable, This is the best option in Athens. Markos is GREAT... Very attentive and very nice. He gave as a lot of information. We did the tour with 4 teenagers and they love it because Markos is young and fun. I usually don't do reviews but I think this is really something to be recommended.
